The dancer is simply mind blowing and the singers are very good. You can order drinks and snacks to enjoy during the shows which last about 20 minutes, followed by a 30/40 minute break. The first show starts around 9.30, the second is @ 10.30, and so on... We really wanted to pay for the performance - which is free... More

La Carboneria is a very hidden restaurant/bar in the old town of Sevilla. Nevertheless, was one of my favorite spots that I visited. It looked a very genuine spanish "pub", even if most of the people visiting it were turists like me. The show itself was not very fancy or turistical. It was quite beautiful to see a very normal...

Totally authentic and incredible flamenco. Not at all touristy - very genuine and mesmerising. Doesn't really get going till 11pm but we went at that time with an 8, 13 and 15 yr old. They were all entranced by the lady and the musicians. It is set in what can only be described as an old barn with plastic corrugated... More

All the other reviews are correct. Eat before you go, get a good seat and enjoy. The dance and music exceeded expectations!

We went with friends and 2 children. It is a nice place with free flamenco show. The show is extremely good and very professional. It is worth a lot. The menu is too short but the drinks and the price are nice.

This place is a bit out of the touristic main areas but if you want a nice and authentic experience with the local culture, it's worth going to. It's quite a picturesque place with several ornaments from early days in Seville, a garden, a bar for the beers or sangria (very good prices, except for the water) and a small... More

This place doesn't have the greatest kitchen, but some basic tapas that you can snack while enjoying a Flamenco performance. The show is only once per hour and lasts for about 15-20min, but is definitely worth seeing, especially if you don't want to spend a lot of money for some shows. Drinks are cold and well priced. It will be... More

I'm not the sort of person that normally returns to the same bar or show when I'm travelling, but this place was so good that we went 3 days out of 4 on our stay in Seville. We paid for a flamenco show elsewhere the first night and were really disappointed, so it was a delight to find this place.... More

We found this place by accident and returned twice in a week. It feels like a secret special place, charmingly ramshackle, cheap, welcoming, and with the most glorious flamenco music and dance taking place right in your midst. Food is basic but good, drinks cheap, staff and atmosphere friendly and the music out of this world. Every performance we saw... More
